Laser Open Training

Are you looking to broaden your Laser training? Our open training is a perfect way to improve and increase your on water learning time. For all abilities, this open training will look to support sailors in achieving their sailing goals.

We are also working with UKLA to provide excellent and effective open training. The open training will initially aim to increase and maintain participation in the Laser Radial fleet through the UKLA coaching dates. If you want to take part in the UK dates please head to the UKLA website, or alternatively, for the Lake Garda dates, please use the link below.

To make this level of sailing accessible to all, and in line with the Andrew Simpson Foundation’s charitable objectives, we are pleased to be able to offer equipment and training subsidies to those who may not ordinarily be provided with the opportunity to participate. If you feel like you would benefit from support for this training series, then please contact for an application form.
